OBLITAS GUADALUPE, Luis Armando; SOTO VASQUEZ, Duber Enrique; ANICAMA GOMEZ, José Carlos  and  ARANA SANCHEZ, Adolfo Alfredo. Incidence of mindfulness in academic stress in university students: a controlled study. Ter Psicol [online]. 2019, vol.37, n.2, pp.116-128. ISSN 0718-4808.

Mindfulness is a cognitive method that consists of giving full attention to the body, breathing, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, which is used to reduce stress, pain, anxiety and depression, which has some clinical evidence. Recently, its applications in the university field are being evaluated, with results that are not yet conclusive. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the incidence of an eight-week program of mindfulness in reducing academic stress in a group of 54 university students, with a randomized control group, and with pre-post-test measures using the CISCO Academic Stress Inventory. It was found that there are no statistically significant differences in the stress levels of the group that received the der mindfulnes program compared to those who did not receive the training. The result is congruent with some findings that do not attribute efficiency of mindfulness in the management of academic stress.
